Tornado in Paradise, Senggigi Beach Lombok Indonesia

    Newer Older

    A Real Moment.

    Big Tornado seen in senggigi beach, the most popular beach in Lombok Indonesia. Lombok Island located beside Bali Island. This event happen at 29 December 2007 18:30 East Indonesia Time.

    In that time I was shoting sunset using Canon EFS 10-22 lens, after knowing that a tornado is coming, I run fast to my bag to switch lens to Canon 70-200 F2.8 IS to capture the tornado heading my way but still far enough. Lucky for me that the camera setting still in RAW so I can adjust the brightness, contrast and color temperature because the dark condition is not helping me shot this image handheld in correct exposure.
